  1. Que dicen, los españoles (o hispano-hablantes) hablan bién otras lenguas o tienen más dificuldades en aprenderlas?
  2. Dora, donde esta viviendo tu amigo es España? Quizas lo puedas visitar alla, lo clima es muy bueno y el sur es muy bonito, a mi mes gusta mucho.
  3. Soda Stereo es una banda rock de Argentina? Voy a investigarla, gracias, no conozco ninguna banda rock en español por lo que vay a ser una experiencia diferente.
  4. Los paises que más me atraen son Cuba, Mexico, Argentina e Brazil. Quizas Chile también. Los primeiros por las playas e lo clima, Chile me gustaria visitarlo de arriba hacia abajo, deverá ser un viaje fascinante!
  5. From a historical point of view it might be interesting, but from a practical point of view, it's really good for nothing I think. My mother learned Latin in the university along with Portuguese, English and German. Guess what, Latin was good for nothing to her, she never got to use it.
  6. The are a lot of different words from US and UK English, but I think cancelled is the correct word, at least I've never seen canceled written anywhere. Probably that isn't wrong either?
  7. I don't know, probably for a girl I think penguin is cure and for a boy possibly tiger. I don't know if this has some sort of negative connotation though. :grin:
  8. LOL, I find these pretty insulting to be honest, but sometimes it's not the word itself, but the tone in which the person refers to me or other person, sometimes that is even more insulting.
  9. I don't know if Americans are shallow-minded, but I do think they are close minded, many of them think the world is confined to the US and that is not the case.
  10. Learning with children's books is a great option because they language is very simple and the structure too. You can browse the net for very simple texts, they will help you a lot.
  11. This would be a waste of resources no doubt, being able to organize such a trip and then students don't take advantage of it. Can you please share the location of the field trip and why didn't the interaction in the goal language happened?
  12. So in this case you mention what's the outcome, is Algerian a language or do they speak a dialect from French or Arabic?
  13. Yep broknk, it's just a joke, in the title could well appear Chinese because for most of us there is not a big difference between Chinese and Japanese.
  14. What is your region Lin? :grin: I've never heard nothing of what you describe, could you please provide more information? The concept "dumb" is also pretty vague...
  15. I am not sure if I have seen this posted here on our forum, maybe if was just on my FB page, either cases it's funny lol. Katoteshiku just for the record! :wacky:
  16. I am Portuguese and English is very important as you can all imagine. I use it a lot at work because I work at a university and we have a lot of foreign students and teachers. Also when going abroad, English is a language that everyone knows.
  17. What is the difference between a language and a dialect? My first impression would be that a dialect is a derivation of the language, but it's still the same language right? Or has it something to do with the number of speakers?
  18. Ahah, so it's actually spoken by approximately 8000 people? I think that can hardly be considered a language no, it's more like a dialect.
  19. Only someone that never studied languages could consider possible to learn a language in 10 days. In 10 days we don't even learn the basics! We might pick up some sentences and words, but that's pretty much it.
  20. Era uma vez uma jovem menina chamada Ana Maria que gostava muito de comer gelados com sabor a morango. Um dia, ela decidiu que
  21. Eso si se llama suerte Oakster! A mi me vay bien el dia, mañana ya es fin de semana y me voy a poder descansar un poco tras una semana muy agotante.
  22. I have a teacher here where I work that insists in speaking English with me despite she is here in Portugal for over 3 or 4 years. She speaks a decent Portuguese, it's understandable, so I really don't get why she hides behind her English.
  23. Era uma vez uma jovem menina chamada Ana Maria que gostava muito
  24. It's pretty confusing to me, it's probably like Denis says, American or British ways of speaking. If I would say it though, I'd say take a bath or shower and not have a bath or shower, maybe is the influence of the American TV shows.
  25. I think the word nervous comes into all our heads when we thing of an exam. I recall once I haven't studied nothing and I was so nervous that the teacher asked me if I was feeling good and I managed to make my exam in other date lol, I got lucky!
